THE DUCK AND THE KANGAROO
By Edward Lear
Photo-illustrated by Jane Wattenberg
Meet Duck.Duck has a yen for travel and adventure. Duck also has some very wet, cold feet and a gift for loyalty and compromise.
Kangaroo has been around the world and back, and is looking for a little bit of luck.
Or a duck.
When Duck and Kangaroo meet, it’s a match made in . . . heaven.
Ah, love—ain’t it grand?
And who so happy,—O who, As the Duck and the Kangaroo?
“Masterful…Wattenberg’s quirky photo collages are perfectly suited for Lear’s nonsensical text.”
“Top marks for visual exuberance; this is the first separate edition of the verses available in this country in decades.”
— Kirkus Reviews
“This title’s delightfully silly verse, paired perfectly with elaborate pictures to scrutinize, should not be missed.”
— School Library Journal
